I waited days on open library for this book. So certainly a case of great expectations! Typical YW. Her father has just died leaving loads of debt and she has to save Greystone, the family manor at least as her poor granny has had too many shocks of late.
So plays right into his hands. These hs are so selfless and nev The heroine is about to lose everything since her late father made some seriously bad investments. She is left alone to take care of grandma, living together on their much loved family estate. Even though she is now penniless, she believe she can keep things afloat knowing that the house is clear of any mortgages.
Unfortunately, she finds out that her father borrowed heavily from the hero, using the estate as collateral. Of course, hero blackmails her into marriag He was arrogant and cruel but not sadistic, a very common characteristic we see a lot in the romance novel's lead male of the time.

Marriage of convenience between a besotted H who hides his love for most of the novel, by pretending that he only feels a sexual desire for the heroine. Cute, sheltered Mary Sue heroine with a sweet and loving grandma who dies at the end and an evil witch OW with no pride. There's also a besotted but useless OM who means well but always ends up causing trouble inadvertently. It's a vintage, old fashioned romance so expect some politically incorrect stuff.

She agrees in order to save the life of her grandmother, as the property indebted is their family Greystone manor. The hero confesses to being att Loved it.
I really thought it would be another marital rape and abuse book but no. The hero actually understood that getting married in one week of knowing each other was not enough for an innocent girl to go to bed with him.
He even respected her for her loving nature and he was so scared that she would leave him it was awesome. I loved it. My dream cold, arrogant, cruel hero and insecure but saint heroine, marriage by blackmail, attempted force seductions there are some epic words of seduction of virgin evil OW, sick grandma, treasured manor.

A nice, angsty read. It however took me sometime to get into it mainly because it took me some time to warm up to Melanie. I felt there was a sort of cool detachment in her. Which is why, I didn't feel her love until much, much later than when she'd claimed to love Jason.
Jason was okay. Although, he was harsh on the wedding night to her, seeing that she was not ready to consummate the marriage, he gave her time to come around. I only wish he hadn't given his ex-mistress, Delia, so much freedom Apr 10, Tatiana Stefan rated it really liked it. I read this book more than 20 years ago I was probably 12 - 14 years old.
I remember that I loved the book. Last night I read it again as I felt nostalgic and I was curious whether I would still like it 20 years later. Well I still liked it! I noticed this time though that I was much more critical and judgmental lol. This book was written in so naturally its kind of un-PC as usual. We do not get to hear the hero's perspective.
Hero is the usual controlling, bos Good, basic older HP. I wasn't totally sucked in and there was something about the hero I didn't like something more than the usual HP hero asshat-ery , but I still enjoyed it.
Pretty ludicrous that the hero would demand marriage from the heroine as payment of a debt after barely meeting her, and not because he 'needed' to be married for some reason or another, but whatever.
The Yvonne Whittal books I've read are set in South Africa, a part of the world very familiar to me and I always feel an extra connection. What fascinates me is how they were written in the times of apartheid but little of that bleeds into the book. Here the innocent h and the corporate marauder tangle to good effect, though I found his conversion to love a little too quick to be believable.
The evil OW is done well by Typical Whittal novel consist of: Hero - usually controlling, bossy, manipulative, abusive and blackmailing type of person arse.
Heroine - fresh, virginal and beautiful sacrificial lamb this one does have some fire and backbone to her Parent or sibling that heroine makes a sacrifice for and eventually puts up with hero's bs Other male - There is a weak chaacter that didnt manage to cause a lot of angst, though he doesn't show up that much Other woman - oh, and aint this one a nasty one good Shelves: modern-day-virgin-heroine, romance, pregnancy-children-kids-fertility, possessive-jealous-hero, read-in, harlequin, reviewed, ebook-s-ive-read.
Thought I'd put that in for people who prefur that in their books Ends in typical Harlequin romance fashion with a HEA. I have now read about 10 books from this author and she does not know how to create chemistry between her characters. There is so much anger and angst and then suddenly - the heroine is in love.
I don't know if that's the case with all older books that followed a similar structure in harlequin-world or just this author. WOW - this has it all Good read - well written - heroine losses everything - hero has everything - great combination for blackmail, mayhem, jealousy, marriage, alpha male, desperate female! Hardly any conversation.
I don't know why he should fall in love with a woman who was only one dimensional. Shelves: hp-sil-mb, paperback, cold-or-cruel-hero, hero-is-a-jerk, moc-forced-marriage-shotgun-wedding, ow-interferes, jealousy, angst. Had some trainwrecky qualities.
Story and characters not fleshed out. Some insta-love. I stayed a little detached reading. Yvonne Whittal was born and raised in South Africa, the setting of most of her romances. She started writing stories at a young age, but didn't really get serious about writing until after she married and had children. She got many rejection letters from publishers, until a friend who loved romances gave her to encouragement to continue.
